Yann Delacour observes small phenomenons. 15×20 cm print on Fine art paper,2004 © Yann Delacour.
A year ago, I was walking on the street below my flat and found a beautiful purple bellflower growing in the macadam. I could not believe this miracle of nature and figured, the rain had brought down the seeds from my balcony, five floors above. When you think of how hard it sometimes is to grow perfect flowers in perfect humus, this seemed magical.
Well, magic is exactly what photographer Yann Delacour is all about, when he observes a series of « insignificant » things and publishes them in « Le Monde d’Hermès ». The twice a year glossy publication always shows great images. This time, and under the influence of Sylviane de Decker, Hermès’ photography consultant, the most modest little weed enters the world of utter luxury and savoir faire.
